Basilica Del Santo Nino - Paintings

Paintings that depicts the history of the church lined up the walls going to the chapel of Senor Santo Nino - the Patron Saint of Cebu City.

Although they are only very few, but I am still glad they were preserved...

Italliani Has Arrived in Cebu

Italliani has arrived in Cebu! Okay, servings are generous and yummy too. But when the curiosity has already been appeased and the tummies are full, the reality is that - they are a bit expensive... 

The view of the outside from inside Italliani.  

No, Cyma (another restaurant - Greek food), is actually next door - but can be seen through the glass walls.

A hefty serving of Pizza -  but quite pricey!

But I love their version of Fries (in Honey Mustard Dip)

That is Ginger Apple and Grape smoothie... heavenly! But so is the price.

The Money Tree of Ayala Center Cebu for the 2014 Chinese New Year last Jan 31.  It was placed in the new wing.


MacJoy Ayala Center Cebu

Years years ago when I just came back from Makati on a vacation, my friends invited me to MacJoy in its old address in Osmena Blvd near Luym Bldg.  I think there was no Jollibee nor McDonald's at that time.  I remembered MacJoy then was simple and even a bit drab.

Now in comparison - the MacJoy in Ayala Cebu is a refreshing surprise.  It burst with colors in neon pink, neon green, and neon orange.  Inspite of the colors, it seems to attract not only young people but in fact more older ones.

Shabu Way - The Terraces (Ayala Center Cebu)

Normally we just passed by Shabu Way, because the next door is our favorite Chinese restaurant.  One day for a change we decided to give it a try...  It is unique because you cook your hot soup in your table!

The Facade of Shabu Way  - 2nd Level Ayala Terraces

Inside of Shabu Way

The covered pot is where we cook our hot soup, see some of the ingredients?

Thirst quencher - Watermelon Juice!

Now - ready to EAT!  Actually you can choose a variety of mixes, but we stuck to a simple combo.  We couldn't eat all of them.  This is actually recommended if you are many.  Then you can go for variety and a lot of mixes.

We gotta have our RICE.  So we also ordered a sizzling seafood platter.  The veggies were crunchy and delicious.  But the fish bits were a bit on the salty side.  For me only noh... perhaps others find it okay.

That's where it is at the Terraces.  We took the angle from across...
